Right, I love Whitney but if this is her comeback single then I am distraught. It's just OK but she needs a club banger.



Is it just me, or has the crack damaged her voice beyond repair? It's changed so MUCH.

Yes this is the come back single, the album is meant to be a return to her big ballad roots.

Sounds a bit like it might be practically a gospel choir album.

Her voice is still very good but it has completely changed from the Crack, raspy not as strong, breaks in her rage where she now has to go into head voice for the high notes, and the riffing isnt anywhere near as crisp as it once was.

Good to see her back on her feet and recording again but I don't think we will ever have the real Whitney back.

Apparently she has Akon and Alicia Keys-produced tracks on the album which bode well for me, but I think this song is pretty limp and won't do so well.

My Love Is Your Love is my favourite album of hers. I'd have welcomed a new album that sounded like that, along with some Step By Steps and I'm Every Womans. She'll also need to promote the hell out of this because apart from the diva-loving gays, most people under 30 won't give a toss about her or the album.

Can't listen at work, but will do later. I read a very complimentary review of her album launch, saying there are some crackers on the album.

What ana amazing talent she was once, great to see her back and hopefully with the drugs totally behind her.

Agree with you though Darth, there's a lot of people won't give a toss about this release - we've got used to Mariah, Leona, Alicia et al giving us the diva moments recently.

Yeah read some reports from her listening party and sounds like there might be a few tracks that could become hits.

I love all the 80's stuff, and the bodyguard stuff, out of her later stuff I like Learned from the Best, It's not right. I think one of my all time faves is All At Once

Here's a recent interview from YouTube. Poor old Clive Davis can hardly move his face for the botox. He knows his stuff when it comes to his ladies so I imagine the album will be great but I wish she'd come back with an uptempo number to grab peoples' attention.



A warts and all interview with someone like Oprah would be amazing but I doubt she'll even address the drugs and divorce. Less of the ice-queen would also do her favours with casual fans, as much as I love it.

Does anyone think she's getting a look of Tina Turner about her these days too?

Did anyone see the Oprah interview? There's a link to it I can post for those who want to watch. Whitney was definitely the most normal I have ever seen her in the interview. Oprah was her usual overkill self - 'you're the voice, the VOICE, THE. VOICE.' and so on but Whitney didn't shy away from anything. I love her even more now.

Whitneys comeback album is VERY good and there are some right cracking songs on there! She will never be the Whitney that we know and love but it is good to see her back!
